Nine new composers; nine new works.

2011 participants are:  Damian Griffin, Lachlan Hughes, Nicole Murphy, Pedro Oliveira Woolmer, Anastasia Pahos, Peggy Polias, Owen Salome, James Wade and Chris Williams.
Artists: Alison Morgan (soprano), Jenny Duck-Chong (mezzo soprano), Diana Springford (clarinets), Geoffrey Gartner (cello), Genevieve Lang (harp), Sally Whitwell (piano).
